New Hampshire Humanities presents:
Darby Field and the "First" Ascent of Mount Washington
Monday, April 29th at 1:00pm at COA
For more than 200 years historians believed that Darby Field made the first climb up Mount Washington in 1642. However, in the last several decades, questions have emerged about his use of Native American guides, about the likelihood of prior ascents by Native Americans, about the route Field may have followed on the mountain, and about whether Field actually made the ascent as claimed. Allen Koop examines how historians reconstruct the "truth" when given scant, vague, and even contradictory evidence. Please call COA at 526-6368 to register.

Zentangles are miniature pieces of unplanned, abstract, black and white art created through a very specific method from a collection of simple, structured patterns called tangles. Zentangles are not only beautiful, they are fun and relaxing to create. The process of creating a Zentangle is a form of artistic meditation as one becomes completely engrossed in making each pattern, deliberately focusing on one stroke at a time. The creativity options and pattern combinations are boundless. Anyone can do it and Deborah will guide you through the entire process! There is no charge for this class. Maximum number of students is 12. Please call COA at 526-6368 to register.
